Level of acidity (pH)

Some products directly contain acids and alkalis (soluble salts), others increase acidity or alkalinity in the body in combination with juices and digestive acids (acid lemons promote alkalinity increase). As mentioned above, a diet rich in alkalinity-enhancing products plays a key role in maintaining long-term health. It promotes detoxification, because the body is already working on eliminating acid waste metabolism. The optimal state of the internal environment of the body is slightly more alkaline than neutral. You can easily check your pH with a litmus test moistened with saliva. They are available in health food stores.

The increased acidity of the internal environment of the body is manifested by a decrease in bone density. An increasing number of women are diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis. In such cases, most doctors prescribe additional calcium and encourages their patients to consume more dairy products in order to receive more building material for bones. They do not understand that the bone, like an alka-zeltzer tablet, secretes its salts in an attempt to neutralize the constantly increased acidity of the blood. The bones dissolve because of the acids contained in the blood, and the doctors recommend eating more dairy products that promote acidity. In addition, calcium is not deposited in bones without a certain level of vitamin D, and physicians very rarely prescribe an analysis for the content of this vitamin. If, in such situations, a diagnosis of "toxicity damage" was made and the determination of acidity was prescribed, this would be the first step towards improving the body.

Eating away from home during the elimination diet is not a problem. You just have to pick more selectively where to go for a snack, and carefully study the menu. In Italian restaurants, where pizza and pasta are served, it is more difficult to avoid unacceptable food, but even there it is possible.
Typical restaurant dishes that do not meet the requirements of the elimination diet are sandwiches, hamburgers, pizza, pasta, sushi, tomato sauces, tofu dishes, wheat flour noodles, soy sauces, fried potatoes, scrambled eggs and other egg dishes, tortilla of wheat flour , burrito, pancakes with meat, coffee and any desserts, except fruit salads and fruits.
Order dishes that contain a lot of protein, vegetables and allowed cereals, such as brown rice (a good option - Indian restaurants offering a wide range of vegetarian dishes). Ask the waiter to remove your wine glass and not bring a basket of bread, and you will see that the situation is much easier than you might think.
Marco, a native of Italy, addressed me a few days after he was diagnosed with lung cancer at a later stage, which already metastasized in other organs. He coughed, gasped, quickly tired and suffered from depression. The skin of his face was a grayish shade. The Italian physician took him several weeks of life and offered to undergo chemotherapy as a means of last resort. He boarded the plane and flew to New York.
During the conversation with him, I carefully weighed every word. It turned out that Marco throughout his life was an avid smoker, eating mostly red meat, pasta, bread, butter, cheese, fatty desserts and daily drank wine. He was very fond of dessert. From time to time he ate vegetables, abundantly flavored with mayonnaise.
There are many cases where patients, who were predicted by doctors for an early death, lived afterwards for decades. "Life does not end until it is over" -this is their motto. Almost all these wonderfully surviving people are united by one thing: for the sake of recovery they radically changed their lives. Those who were under the influence of severe stress, seriously engaged in meditation. Atheists have become profound believers. Fans of hamburgers became vegetarians.
Marco frowned when I talked about vegetable juices, which supply the body with nutrients, antioxidants and means for increasing the alkalinity of the blood. He could not imagine a life without meat and wine and categorically did not want to give up his long-standing habits.
Then I said to him: "There are no incurable diseases, there are incurable patients. Everything that you have done so far has not benefited your health. If you continue to behave in this way, you will endanger your own life. " In the end, he realized the seriousness of his situation, and in his mind there were cardinal changes. For him came the moment of truth, and he decided to try to perceive food not as a means of obtaining pleasure, but as a means of healing. A complete change in diet is not a guarantee of cure for any kind of ailment. Of course, I did not advise him to give up traditional methods of treatment. Marco's story serves as an illustration of the fact that the most effective tool for healing is the willingness to experience new ways of resolving the problem if previous approaches do not help.

Level of acidity (pH)

  1. Touch level
    The sensory level of development of the psyche is associated with the transformation of the initially undifferentiated sensitivity into differentiated sensations. As shown by A.N. Leontiev, the latter arise when the animals master the increasingly complex and diverse habitats. Among other mental processes, sensations are distinguished by their paradoxical specificity. L.M. Vekker notes that, with
  2. Perceptual level
    The next level of development of the psyche is perceptual. It is associated with the ability of animals to perceive holistic objects and situations. Studies of "perceptogenesis" have shown that it is a stage process involving a number of intermediate stages between the perception and perception of an integral object (LM Vekker, BF Lomov). It can be assumed that similar transition phases characterized
  3. Lactic acid level
    If the metabolic rate is significantly increased, the "normal" level of oxygen consumption may not be sufficient. Thus, the assessment of the main components of the oxygen transport system (DO, and V02) allows us to determine the supply of tissues to them, but does not provide information on its adequacy. With absolute or relative deficiency of oxygen, anaerobic type of respiration is activated, the final
  4. The level of the human psyche
    The level of the human psyche is characterized by the presence of a rechemylic sociogenic consciousness. The development of human consciousness is conditioned by the development of the system of knowledge, as well as the development of moral and moral representations and norms. Human knowledge, including knowledge of moral and moral values, is also due to intuition processes, but higher than at the previous stage of development of the psyche,
  5. The level (state) of consciousness.
    A normal child has a meaningful and lively appearance, is able to respond to external stimuli, including (if older) and answer questions, participates in an invitation to contact (contact). The figure shows that the child responds adequately to medical examination and is calm in the presence of the mother. Disturbed consciousness (drowsiness, confusion, or coma) are the most important signs of a progressive
  6. Level of undifferentiated sensitivity
    The lowest, embryonic level of mental development, responding, according to A.N. Leontiev, undifferentiated sensitivity, follows directly from the pre-psychological form of life and the dopsychic form of reflection. Accordingly, the phase of the background activity (always responding, as was shown in § 3 of Chapter 1, to the previous level of development) is carried out here on a dopsychic level and
  7. Post -conventional level (after 13 years)
    The true morality of man is characterized precisely by this level. Having reached it, a person judges behavior based on his own criteria, which naturally implies a high level of intellectual activity. 5th stage: "social norms, principles and values". Answers: 1) "If Heinz does not do everything possible to save his wife, he risks losing the respect of others. is he
  8. The level of psyche of highly developed animals
    The level of psyche of highly developed animals is related to the initial level of development of intuitive processes. Intuition is usually interpreted as "knowledge that arises without comprehension of the ways and conditions for obtaining it," or as an appropriate process - as "one form of unconscious reflection", "an unconscious activity of thinking about processing and generalizing previously and actual acquired information." Characteristic
  9. Social background and educational level
    The social characteristics of the personnel of the Armed Forces were of particular importance for understanding the psychology of servicemen throughout the 20th century: first of all, social origin and position, and also the level of education. Moreover, the importance of social origin since the beginning of the century towards its end has been constantly decreasing, and the real social status has been of primary importance for the personnel officers and
  10. Level of possession of the method of intelligence cards
    Whatever knowledge you have about intelligence cards, when starting to read "Super Thinking", your initial approach should be to look at the book first and foremost about its structure, note the parts that are of special interest to you, then you are asked to formulate the main goals that you will pursue, starting to study the book in detail.

    A person at this level of moral development is guided by generally accepted, traditional principles and norms of behavior that all or most other people provide. 3rd stage: "approval by other people." Answers: 1) "There is nothing wrong with the fact that Hinz the prince wanted to save his wife, no. But he showed everyone how good a husband he was. Everyone knows that love is priceless. Her nothing
  12. Initial level of knowledge
    To prepare for this topic, the student must KNOW: | Characteristics of a full-term, premature baby; | Physiological conditions of newborns; | Characteristics of health groups of newborns; Risk groups of newborns; Risk factors for setting risk groups for newborns; | Pathological conditions during pregnancy, leading to hypoxia of the newborn; | Criteria of health
  13. The highest level of health is spiritual
    Considering the spiritual as the highest level of health, let us dwell on various approaches to understanding spirituality as a phenomenon. In particular, theology connects spirituality with the sacred principle, the world mind and makes it inherent only to people who believe in higher, divine powers. The paradigmatic setting of theology is distinguished by a holistic view of man in all his totality. Authentic
  14. Preconventional (pre-moral) level (4-10 years)
    The actions of people who are at this level of moral development are determined by external circumstances (rules) in order to avoid punishment and deserve a reward. The points of view of other people in this case are not taken into account by the subject. This level of development determines the first two stages. 1st stage: "obedience and punishment." The answers of the children? 1) "Heinz had to buy a medicine. If he stole it, his
  15. The level of cardiac glycosides in serum
    Measurement of the level of cardiac glycosides in most clinics is performed by radioimmunoassay [30]. This method has a number of disadvantages, including potential errors related to residues in the serum or plasma of radioisotopes used for diagnostic purposes. Although there appears to be a correlation between the serum level of cardiac glycosides and their pharmacological action
  16. Acid-base condition
    Almost all chemical reactions in the human body depend on maintaining the concentration of hydrogen ions in physiologically acceptable limits. The concentration of hydrogen ions is tightly regulated, since its changes can cause the dysfunction of many organs and systems. A complex system of regulation of the concentration of hydrogen ions is often called the acid-base state, the knowledge of which is extremely
  17. Acid-base balance
    Most fruits and vegetables have an alkaline reaction, and meat, fish, eggs, cottage cheese, sugar, confectionery and yeast bread are acidic. Food products with a high proportion of nonmetallic elements (sulfur, phosphorus and chlorine) are acid-forming, that is, during the metabolic process are responsible for the formation of acids. Products that reduce acidity and are, therefore,
